2013-08-28 17:59:34 - New Healthcare research report from Espicom Business Intelligence is now available from Fast Market Research
Any assessment of the world's leading emerging economies must consider the recent economic developments, the health plans which are in place and the challenges that are influencing the progress of the health market.
But analysis which is based on whole country statistics can miss the subtle trends which are influencing the markets on the ground.
Identifying opportunities in local health economies requires detailed knowledge of the economic performance and health infrastructure at a city/provincial/regional level. Being able to see that in the context of the neighbouring districts/regions as well as the national picture, brings focus to areas of opportunity and need.

Drill down into regional health markets and better understand the opportunities and challenges
The fifth largest country in the world in terms of both area and population, Brazil has experienced rapid economic growth in recent years. And its successful bid to host the 2014 World Cup combined with Rio de Janeiro's host of the 2016 Olympics have boosted investment in the country further. But the benefits of this growth have not been wide-spread, with healthcare provision across the country uneven, and the burden of disease disparate from north to south, and from the coast inland. Analysing the healthcare market on a region-by-region basis brings these differences to light.
The quality of healthcare and healthcare facilities within the Russian Federation remains immensely variable. At the upper end of the spectrum, Moscow has a number of world class institutions and Western standard medical facilities targeted at expatriates and better off Russian nationals. However, at the lower end of the sector, equipment can be outdated and the condition of buildings can be woeful: in April 2013 a fire at a psychiatric hospital in Moscow region killed 36 patients and two members of staff. A similar earlier incident at a clinic for drug addicts claimed 45 lives in December 2006.
India is the second-largest country in the world by population, and combines a wealth of climates, geographies and social differences - all of which help shape the healthcare market. While the industrialised states are making great
advances in terms of the quality of care, the development of the private healthcare sector and in health education, other regions struggle to keep up. Challenges such as inadequate infrastructure and poor levels of education are key
barriers to the provision of care. But even on a state-by-state basis, there are pockets of abundance, and poverty. Overall, funding of the healthcare sector is low and in the short term at least, exclusion, rather than inclusion, will define
The most populated country in the world, China's healthcare market brings with it a unique set of challenges and opportunities. Demand for medicines and improved healthcare facilities continues to rise, as the country's middle class expands, but topline growth hides numerous disparities. China's vast size, geographical contrasts and sharp differences between rural and urban populations mean that the healthcare market is developing at a different rate, and sometimes in a different direction, across the country. The Chinese are also quick to migrate in search of work, a factor that puts a strain on public healthcare facilities. Examining these trends on a region-by-region basis, while the healthcare sector expanding in urban areas, western China risks being left behind.
